- Wood For Get Me Not (Myosotis sylvatica )

- A garden escape, though native elsewhere in Britain. Rarely naturalised in woods. May also occur as a casual in waste places or where thrown out from gardens. The forgetmenots commonly grown in gardens are forms of this species.

Flower diameter c 6-10 mm

Calyx hairs spreading, hooked. Corolla-tube equal to or longer than sepals, so that open flower is flat, not concave. Young flowers pink, not yellow.

Other features: Calyx in ripe fruit has stalk c 1.5-2 x as long as itself. Can usually be told from Field Forgetmenot on flower size.
